William married Minnie Smith on March 15, 1910 in Berlin. At the time he was a shoemaker. In 1912 he travelled to the USA and was a builder, and identified as having a Scottish background. On his passenger manifest to the US, he notes his address as 102 Lancaster St. W in Berlin. William and Minnie had 3 children, Hilda, Mabel and George, all born before the war. He enlisted April 12 1916 at Berlin. His attestation papers list Minnie as his next of kin who was originally listed as living at 135 Ahrens Street, but then moved to 56 Krug Street. He was 5 feet, 6 1/2 inches tall, with a ruddy complexion, brown hair and blue eyes. He was noted as a rubber worker, and had previously served 7 months with the 108th Regiment.

After the war, William returned home to his family and at the time of the 1921 census of Canada, William and his family were living in South Montreal (4A Prefontaine Street) where William worked as a Pattern Maker. They must have moved back to Ontario by 1930 - in this year they lost their daughter Mabel, aged 18 years, and she is buried in the Woodstock Presbyterian Cemetery. William and Minnie are buried in the same cemetery, William passed away in 1960 and Minnie in 1984.

Notes
Calvin Edward Courter was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA on February 14th, 1898. He immigrated to Canada with his family in 1905 to Masionneuvve, Quebec. At some point his family moved to Kitchener and lived at 87 Weber St. His father's name was Lewis (Louis) Courter and his mother was Marietta (Mary Etta, Mary) Strohm (Strome). He had two brothers and three sisters. Tragically his mother and one sister died days apart from an influenza outbreak in October 1918, and are both buried at Mt. Hope cemetery in Waterloo, Ontario. Calvin enlisted on March 23rd, 1916 in Kitchener. At the time of enlistment his occupation was pipe fitter. He was age 18 at time of enlistment and was described as 5"7" with a fresh complexion and dark brown hair and eyes. His religion was listed as Baptist, but his mother and sister on their death certificates were listed as Roman Catholic. His regimental number is 751523. At some point it appears he returned to the United States with his father, who died in 1922. He married Edith Schlumkoski who was listed as born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; but in a 1920 census she is noted as Canadian but a naturalized immigrant. They moved to Wayne, Michigan in 1916 and his occupation was listed as a machinist on the 1920 census. By the time of the 1930 census they had five boys: Chandler (1917), Wilbur (1919), Kenneth (1921), Lewis (1924), and Marvin (1926).
